Our Transcultural Student Research Group 2022 officially started.
We are excited to announce that this year over 30 participants from our partner universities are taking part in the TSRG project. Students from the University of Łódź (Poland), Vietnamese-German University (Vietnam), Fulbright University (Vietnam), HTWG Konstanz - University of Applied Sciences (Germany) and Zeppelin University (Germany) joined the project and will conduct research on the topic of "Partnerships for the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals in Southeast Asia".
The Transcultural Student Research Group is project by the Transcultural Caravan at the Leadership Excellence Institute Zeppelin (LEIZ).
The online kick-off took place on 6 May. After an introduction and warm welcome by the representatives of the partners universities, Prof. Josef Wieland (Zeppelin University), Dr. Nguyễn Nam (Fulbright University), Dr. Joanna Ciesielska-Klikowska (Lodz University), Dr. Tomasz Kamiński (Lodz University), Dr. Ngoc Lan Thi Dang (Vietnamese-German University) and Dr. Minh Hanh Le (Vietnamese-German University), the participants had the opportunity to get to know the members of their transcultural groups in a story cycle activity.
In the research groups, participants will work in a transcultural setting. Ten groups of students will cover different topics. In this way, the common research topic on “Partnerships for the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals in Southeast Asia” will be addressed from different angles. The research interests of the various research groups include topics such as „Sustainable Economy“, „Female Leadership“, “Environmental Issues”, to name but a few. The next steps of the project will include a preparatory phase, a research trip and a winter school. In the end, the participants will have the opportunity to publish and present their research results in our “Transcultural Management Series”.
Thank you Jessica Schwengber and Tobias Grünfelder for organising and moderating this TSRG Kick-Off and thank you to everyone who will be a part of this journey. We are very excited to see the research projects evolve and new connections to be made.
